Notre Dame takes care of Pulaski in straight sets

GREEN BAY – The Notre Dame Academy volleyball team had a shaky start to its match against Pulaski Thursday, Oct. 7.

The Tritons fell behind 6-1 out of the gate to the hard-hitting Red Raiders but quickly got back on track to claim a straight-set, Fox River Classic Conference victory (26-24, 25-19, 25-13).

“Our team has been working hard on staying together, depending on each other and picking each other up,” Notre Dame Head Coach Lindsay Shauer said. “Our effort is there, and our commitment to each other is there – that’s the biggest thing for us.”

After the Tritons clawed their way back into the first frame, the score went back and forth until late when Pulaski got some breathing room at 23-19.

Notre Dame then took a timeout.

Whatever Shauer said to her crew worked because the Tritons tied the score at 24 shortly after thanks to an ace from Mya Kapalko.

The next point went to Notre Dame on a block from Gracie Grzesk and Danielle Dow before Kapalko put a serve squarely on the out-of-bounds line for an ace to close out the set.

The second set was close early as well.

Pulaski’s Jocelin Feutz was playing big at the net, but later in the frame, Olivia Sullivan responded with her own kills.

With some breathing room in hand, Madelyn Wolfram finished off another set for the Tritons with an ace that clipped the backline.

Kapalko provided much of the power Notre Dame used to put away the third frame, including a big cross-court kill that had no chance of being returned, making it 14-8.

When Kapalko and Sullivan weren’t overpowering their opponents at the net, the Tritons used finesse to put the ball in play.
The match ended on such a shot when Matiah Christensen tapped a soft shot past the Red Raider defense for 25-13 and the end of the night.
